Colorado Gives Day is coming up in less than a week, and we need your support. On Tuesday, Dec. 9, thousands of donors will come together to support Colorado nonprofits like Lift-Up of Routt County.
Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving, and this year the effort is receiving extra support from Yampa Valley Gives, the new ColoradoGives Regional Champion established to help promote charitable giving to nonprofit organizations in Northwest Colorado.
So why should you donate on Colorado Gives Day?
Every dollar donated on Colorado Gives Day, which falls on Tuesday, Dec. 9, will get a boost from a statewide $1 million Incentive Fund provided by Community First Foundation and FirstBank – one of the largest giving day incentive funds in the country. Every nonprofit receiving a donation on Colorado Gives Day will receive a proportionate share of the Incentive Fund, which increases the value of every dollar donated.
In addition to the statewide Incentive Fund, Routt and Moffat nonprofits will benefit from Yampa Valley Gives’ $20,000 Incentive Fund generously provided by the Boettcher Foundation and El Pomar Foundation.
